Frequently Asked Questions
Curious about K12-powered schooling? Read some of the most common questions.
Does the program provide textbooks and other instructional materials?
Yes. We provide the textbooks and instructional materials that are needed to complete the program at no cost to families who are enrolled in an online public school program. These books and materials are sent to families directly.*
Families enrolled in our private schools may receive materials as part of their tuition. Please check with the school administrator or a K12 customer support representative should you decide to enroll in one of these schools.
How does K12 accommodate children with special needs? What about advanced learners?
Yes. We provide tools that allow students to work at their own pace. K12 works for children who need extra time to master a subject as well as those who learn quickly. Depending on a child's IEP, we can tailor the education experience to meet their needs. To discuss your child's needs, please contact us.
How can I connect with families who are currently using K12?
First, we suggest that you visit our "What's Your Story" site, where you can hear from K12-powered students and families how individualized online learning has made a difference in their lives. Also, many K12-powered online public schools have Facebook pages. Feel free to post any questions you may have to individual school pages or the K12 Behind the Scenes Facebook Group. In addition, you may want to attend one of the many in-person activities hosted by K12 and our local schools every month. At these events you can meet enrolled families and talk to teachers and representatives to get a feel for what the program is like day to day. See our events calendar to find out what's coming up in your area.
